The England international moved to Liverpool FC from Arsenal in a £35m deal on transfer deadline day in the summer transfer window.
The 24-year-old was stagnating at the north London club and turned down the offer of a new contract at the Emirates Stadium.
Oxlade-Chamberlain rejected a potential move to defending Premier League champions Chelsea FC in favour of a switch to Liverpool FC.
The England star scored in Liverpool FC’s 4-3 win against Manchester City at Anfield to end the Citizens’ unbeaten start to the season.
Oxlade-Chamberlain netted an even better goal to double the Merseyside outfit’s advantage in a 3-0 victory over Manchester City in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final clash.
Former Manchester United defender Ferdinand explained why he has always been a big admirer of Oxlade-Chamberlain.
“I’ve always liked him in this position,” Ferdinand told BT Sport.
“I saw him play against Man United as a 16-17-year-old against Southampton and I thought he’s someone who can get the ball and break from midfield lines and cause problems.
“It’s just about decision-making and getting to play in that position consistently and learn it. He’s doing that here [at Liverpool].”
Liverpool FC will take on Everton in the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park in Saturday’s early kick-off.
The Reds will make the return trip to Manchester City in the second leg of their Champions League last-eight clash on Tuesday night.
Oxlade-Chamberlain has scored three goals and has made five assists in 29 appearances in the Premier League this term.
